    That's a simpler conversion, and you can do it in most video converters.

    There is a DPG converter for Mac but unless you pay for it it's limited to 5 minutes.

    Best off using Tuna-viDS.

    Actually there is also a dpg converter for Linux (and Mac and Windows xD) called dpg4x...I find it actually pretty neat. It's open source IIRC and has some neat little tricks that dpgtools doesn't have. This is actually a converter that I wouldn't mind recommending people.

    The only time I'd really recommend using Tuna-viDS is when you have sync issues with DPG. For instance, I had some marching band videos that simply would not sync correctly no matter how I converted them to DPG. Using Tuna-viDS introduced some choppiness, but the ability to manually select the frame offset was a lifesaver.

    For all intents and purposes though, you're better off finding a way to convert to DPG. While you can sorta fudge the 12 fps limit of Tuna-viDS if you're not using the full 256x192 resolution, it's still enough to be distracting for anything with any real motion.
